Our anniversary was on a Monday. The kids would all be at school and we could have the day to ourselves. I made sure I didn't have to go in for work. I would skip my usual lunchtime jiu jitsu training. And we purposely didn't go out to eat the prior weekend just so we could splurge a little more than usual.
But no, the kids put a halt on that. The two little ones were "sick" and stayed home from school. Instead of going on a lunch date, I went to the local emergency center to get Tyson tested for COVID.
